Literary debut of Law & Order’s Dick Wolf riveting

(Spoiler Alert—Some of my review contains a spoiler but is necessary for my review)

The Intercept In spite of a slow start, “The Intercept” is suspense-filled and by the end of the book will have you on the edge of your seat.  Dick Wolf, writer, director and creator of NBC’s Law & Order, has birthed a new hero in Jeremy Fisk.  The first of what will inevitably be many more, “The Intercept” introduces a hero for today’s world filled with terrorism and other threats to the United States.

In book one, Jeremy Fisk has three days to save the world from a devastating attack from an unknown enemy and very little clues.  After what is assumed to be a failed hijacking, six passengers become unlikely heroes, but what happens next as they are ushered into a media frenzy is nothing short of frightening.

I was amazed that the author had refrained from obscene language; however, after about 10 chapters, I was disappointed that Wolf not only began using certain words, but he also wrote in some lengthy sexual scenes both of which I believe did not further the story along and could have been left out.  Obviously, Wolf felt like he needed these words and scenes to make the story more interesting.  He did not.

If you are easily offended by obscene language and sexual scenes (some of which are way too much), you should not choose to read “The Intercept”.  If you prefer happy endings, you will be disappointed.  This is probably a book that will appeal to more men than women.
